Marriage and the Gospel

On Saturday February 7, seventy-five couples from our church gathered for a Couple’s Night Out. It was a great evening of fun as we talked and laughed our way through. It also provided an opportunity to introduce the Marriage Action Team that serves our church to care and encourage marriages.

God has designed marriage in a special way to communicate how he relates to us through Christ. Speaking of marriage, Paul says in Ephesians 5:32, “This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.” The purpose of marriage is to be a picture of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Attached you will find an article that shows how marriage can be a wonderful way to communicate the love of Christ to a watching world that desperately desires the intimacy and joy that can only be found in Jesus. Does your marriage tell the story of the gospel?

Is Your Marriage a Picture of the Gospel?
